of america here. here in this case is north korea. kim is the new dictator, kim jong-un. his other hobbies include testing nuclear weapons and threatening to use them on dennis's home and i'll let the spokesman finish my thought. >> a new phase that has lasted century after century will target against the u.s., the sworn enemy of the korean people. >> not very friendly, is it? kim jong-un also maintains a whole network of concentration camps where tens of thousands of people are housed and die of starvation and disease and neglect. kim jong-un is belligerent to the u.s. his rise to power has had no positive impact on the country's dire human rights record. nearly 2,000 are decimated including children. concentration camps really. many spend their entire lives behind barbed wire. outside the wire this is a country with a history of government imposed mass starvation that continues to this day. millions died in the 90s. old people abandoned for lack of food and children being killed. when they take a political prisoner and send them to a concentration camp they send three generations of that
korea, kim jong-un welcomed the troops at the front line with south korea, the communist regime unveiled new threats, including a possible nuclear attack. the u.n. security council pushed back by adopting sanctions. >> reporter: wolf, tensions remain high here on the korean peninsula, following days of aggressive rhetoric from north korea that says it is ready for war. the rogue state, which made the extraordinary threat of a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the united states says it is still willing to nullify the armistice agreement that ended the korean war back in 1953. now once they do that, they begin the exercises which start next week. now no one really knows what it means but there are fears that there could be provocations from pyongyang. this comes in the wake of u.n. sanctions that were voted unanimously by the security council. and with china's support it sends a very strong message that they're also fed up with north korea's belligerent behavior. north korea says they're on high alert and ready for any attack. >> and ambassador susan rice is joining us from the united nat
korean dictator, kim jong-un. >> if you don't want to do that, you don't have to do that. at it more like it's -- a diplomat. i don't want to do that. >> sounds like you're apologizing for him? >> i'm not apologizing for him. he is a good guy to me. he is my friend. i don't condone what he does, but at far as person to person, he is my friend. of course what he does, -- >> if that's not enough. here's a little more. >> i sat with him for two days, and the one thing he asked me to give obama something to say and do one thing. he want obama to do one thing. call him. he loves basketball. obama loves basketball. let's start there let's start there. >> oh, boy. where do you start? fascinating. >> the ratings are going to be good. people want to watch something like that even though it has no place on the sunday news talk shows given the topics they normally talk about. the out fit making a mockery of a situation where people are suffering and children starving. he has no place doing this and how did he get approved to go over there? >> i don't know, greg, at one point he tweeted about meeting
with this guy, we have no idea what kim jong un is like at all. i realize that dennis rodman is quite a wild guy and quite an interesting fellow, i might add, but we now have at least we have a communication from rodman to this guy, which is more than we've ever had. >> yeah, the question is, what communication went into rodman and what reported that communication is coming out. you can get a distorted view. >> greta: it is distorted. i think it is distorted. >> and i think he's presented a distorted view. if they want to communicate with us, there are ways to do it. it's a question here not of one individual kim jong un, it's a question of a regime that's followed a pattern, including since he took office of repressing its people and threatening its neighbors and nothing since kim jong un took power after the death of his father has changed. if anything, it's gotten worse. they've restricted the border to prevent north korean refugees from coming out and tested the nuclear device for the third time and there's every indication, increased cooperation with iran and i think the threat is growing l

, that the father, the grandfather of kim jong-un has exceeded now the direct threats against the united states, the threats of nuclear war on the peninsula, the threats of attacking hawaii, of attacking guam, of attacking the mainland united states with nuclear weapons. let's make clear. he doesn't have the capability to do that. but he is taking it to a different level. and there's a lot of people that are looking on and they're trying to calm the situation down. we heard today from south korea's defense ministry spokes man. listen -- >> translator: north korea's continuing threats against south korea such as saying it is entering a state of war, are never acceptable since it is harming peace and stability on the korean peninsula. the recent military exercises such as key resolve and bold eagle and the u.s. strategic bombers' deployment on the peninsula were defensive in nature against north korea's possible provocation. >> reporter: now, the real threat according to some veteran north korea watchers like dr. ham park of the university of georgia, is that the young north korean leader is back
greeted their leader kim jong-un during his made for tv inspection tour of military border facilities. kim wants the world to see this as he has dramatically stepped up his dangerous rhetoric. he's even threatening a nuclear threat as he faces tough u.n. sanctions for the nuclear test. the obama administration isn't backing down. >> we're also going to continue to increase the pressure if they don't make the right choice. >> reporter: on his way to afghanistan, defense secretary chuck hagel made clear how closely the u.s. was watching. >> the united states of america and our allies are prepared to deal with any threat. >> cnn has learned the u.s. has recently stepped up surveillance using aircraft, radars, and satellites already nearby. military officials say so far there are no signs of unusual military moves by the north. but there is a disturbing new weapons program, the kn-08. u.s. officials say this missile, shown in a north korea military parade last year, is now undergoing engine testing. it's a three-stage ballistic missile with a potential 3,000 mile range. that's not as far as th
making process. obviously, there's a lot of speculation. people are wondering, did kim jong-un get the message that was delivered by china, by russia, and so many others, to dial back the rhetoric and all the talk of near war on the peninsula, missile strikes on the continental united states. did he hear that message? is that why we're seeing all of this? even some north korean experts say kim jong-un was painting himself into a corner with all of that. he was whipping up so much national fervor and getting people geared up to go to war that it could backfire on him. he could lose credibility or even worse, he can find himself in a position where he had to make good on some of those threats in order to maintain a standing in the eyes of his own people. there's little doubt, at this point, that over the course of the next hours and days, all eyes from washington to beijing, from here in seoul to moscow, are going to be on north korea and kim jong-un to try to see what he does say, to try to listen closely and find out what the next move of pyongyang will be. alison? >> okay, jim cla

jong-un, anyone is thinking, you chave to assume that perhaps north korea does have something up its sleeve. >> i know you have, of course, been to the dmz which was created by the cease fire. i went about a year ago when president obama was visiting and it was sort of -- it's almost, i would say, incomprehensible to imagine that this sort of what has governed the creation of this demilitarized zone could sort of vanish in a way. what is the response, anna, from washington and seoul to these latest threats? >> yeah. just on the dmz, brianna. you are talking about a strip of land some 250 kilometers long and 50 kilometers wide. north and south korea take up 50 kilometers each. you stand there literally there are north korean troops looking back at you. the north korean military has something like 1.2 million soldiers. what is their downfall is their navy and their air force. you speak to the experts, brianna, and they would say that north korea would be committing suicide by launching an attack on south korea because, as we know, south korea is very much protected by the united states
there with kim jong un. we look for rational answers why he did "x" or "y." with karzai, he is unstable. i don't want to speculate about his psychological health but the way he acts and the way he speaks he is mercurial and largely incomprehensible. it makes no sense whatsoever to accuse the united states of collaborating with the enemy unless you want america to leaf because we saw the reaction from joe manchin to angeer the americans in to leaving which will leave him alone. without any support, without any state run and he will end up at the top of the lamp post. as happened to the soviet, the leader of afghanistan in the sew yet days after the soviets left. the only possible irrationm explanation he promised the people he would take control of the prison at bagram air base. that was supposed to happen on the visit. it apparently didn't because of a last-minute dispute over the powers of the u.s. and afghans. and i think he might have been humiliated by fact he thought he could deliver and it turned out he can't get back the sovereignty he promised his people. so that may be an explanation.

emotional response to that country's leader kim jong-un. this played out as mr. kim was visiting his troops near the border with south korea. the troops raising their arms in jubilation, but the really good stuff, all the great pictures, actually came as president kim was leaving. now watch. oh, my lord. looks like the reverse normandy. troop, people in civilian clothes, swarming down the beach. some rushing the boat. look at this. this is insane. the boat was pulling away and his followers couldn't get enough of him. and the backdrop is this. a very defiant response to extremely tough united nations sanctions. the north says it is scrapping all nonaggression agreements with south korea. so the armistice, no more. this comes a day after north koreaen preemptive nuclear strike. for its part, the white house is doubting the north korean ability to actually launch a nuclear strike, but in the end it says the united states is prepared just in case. >> the united states is fully capable of defending against any north korean ballistic missile attack. >> so i've always wondered just how prepared a

with south korea, they are cautious about what kim jong-un means about that exactly. here is nbc's ian williams from south korea. >> reporter: craig, not only did north korea declare a state of war, it says it will now deal with south korea according to war-time regulations. it's not clear what that means since this peninsula has been in a technical state of war for 60 years. officials here in seoul dismiss the claims and a rally where tens and thousands turned out shouting death to the u.s. imperialists. he's already scrapped the korean war and cut lines. kim has ordered his missiles on stand by to strike the u.s., guam, even hawaii. experts doubt he has the ability to hit u.s. targets and thinks it would be pretty suicidal to try. they believe a full-scale conflict is extremely unlikely but they do worry about a more localized provocation, perhaps around yellow waters where the north has been holding exercises. there have been several clashes there in recent years and when i visited, i found the most vulnerable island ten miles of the north on a high state of alert. they fear he may

korea. take a look at this. you see people nearly weeping we motion and troops run toward kim jong-un apparently in a near frenzy to honor him. they go waist deep into the water. they run right in. it happened during his recent visit to the border with south korea. north korea, meanwhile, is ramping up the threats. it's testing a dangerous new missile that has a potential range of 3,000 miles and it's even warning of a preemptive nuclear strike. >>> and from overseas to outer space, if you've ever wanted to see a comet without a telescope or binoculars, you might get your chance next week. it could be visible with the naked eye in the northern hemisphere on tuesday just after sunset. it's been visible with a telescope for a while now in the southern hemisphere. scientists say naked-eye comets happen once every five to ten years. i think it makes a space geek out of all of us. >> we're all space geeks when you think about the asteroids, the meteors and the comet. >> that's right. if the comet isn't enough for you, we do have another asteroid headed our way. >> yes, we do. it won't hit
of north korea, kim jong-un, if you're watching this, that doesn't get our attention, threatening us. you have to do something to makes us focus on you like date a kardashian or punch justin bieber. that will get a lot of attention. we follow pop culture more than this stuff. nobody feels north korea is a threat. it's really an empty threat to us. at the same time, the u.n. is considering more sanctions, just voted for more sanctions and he's threatening us to show he's a responsible leader. he's not. i don't think anyone's paying attention. that's the reality. >> did i just see a kardashian -- >> date a kardashian. >> talking about pop culture, i think one of the most interesting pop culture stories this week and the biggest was my friend and yours joy behar leaving "the view." she's been there since the beginning, 16 years. that's one of the biggest jobses in show business in talk and she's deciding to leave. and she's a comedienne and probably is going back to do just that. >> i got on "the view" twice. it was because of joy. she saw he perform in a new york comedy club. i think she's
. it seems to me that the worry level of the united states has gone up since we got kim jong-un. why is that? because we have sort of always thought yes, north korea, it's a rogue state and it's private and we don't know what they're doing but now there seems to be some sort of urgency about their nuclear capabilities. can they reach u.s. shores? >> they certainly have a ballistic missile that can reach u.s. shores. they recently had their third nuclear test and you know, there was lots of speculation about the test, lots of warning to the north koreans not to do it. they have a 28-year-old leader who is trying to prove himself to the military and the military eager to have a saber rattling for their own self-interest and the combination of that is proving to be very deadly. the sheer threat that they'd openly threaten a nuclear attack against the united states is problem enough but their military movement along the dmz, the demilitarized zone in north korea a whole new set of problems for us. it's the largest military in the world still in uniform. this is something that we have to take ser

. north korean dictator, kim jong-un warning releasing video showing imagined attacks on washington and seoul declared that the armistice that halted the korean war was invalid. pretty extreme stuff even by north korean standards and in a pretty short period of time. what's your take on this? do you think he is calling the shots? >> well, there's some debate about that, michael. there are some people who think he's in charge. other folks think maybe his uncle's in charge. it's impossible to know. i think you put it exactly right. both in terms of the extremeness of the statements and the pace of the statements, they've certainly increased these last couple of months. and as you said by standards of north korean rhetoric chrks are pretty bad. they say pretty intense things. if i take any comfort in this, and i don't, the comfort i take is that most of these provocations have not been north korea directly poking south korea. it's a missile test or it's a statement or they're not going to honor an agreement. there hasn't been any direct confrontation. i think that's good. but what worr
north korean leader kim jong-un. in an interview with the uk sun rodman called him, i guess they're on a first basis, a big kid who loves disco, michael jackson and basketball. rodman says kim asked him to deliver a message to president obama, if we can talk, we can work this out. toes are his words. rodman claims the military elite is behind all that tough talk. he also revealed that kim and his wife reportedly have a second child. a baby girl. i know, john, look at the look on his face. >> i'm still thinking of these 15 minutes for dennis rodman have gone on for an hour and 15 minutes. it's too much. i don't know if we knew kim jong-un had a second child. maybe dennis rodman is providing key intelligence now. although i doubt it. >> absolutely. >> dennis rodman providing key intelligence. >> those words have never been spoken. ahead on "starting point" march madness begins. and it is already starting off mad, and frankly bad for me. >> i am actually way ahead of you in brackets. they're used to hoots and hollers, why these ball girls got booed. i had enough of feeling embarrass
fanatic response to kim jong-un as he visited a military camp near the south korean border. troops raising their arms in apparent joy. as he left, soldiers and people from a nearby village chasing, look at them go, through the water, towards his boat, swarming the beach, wading into the freeding cold water, there he is waving good-bye, sending him off. but the reason for his visit to this area, it is a frightening one. this was all part of the young leader's swift and defiant response to u.n. sanctions against north korea. cnn international's veteran reporter, anchor, everything else, jim clancy, in the studio here. we know that the sanctions were unanimously approved, so explain to me what kim jong-un was doing in the hours afterwards. >> well, you know, i looked at that video and i thought to myself -- >> what was that? >> they really would be cheering if he was actually leaving the country, because it is a devastated wreck. he is on the ropes. he is more isolated than ever. this is all staged. we know that. >> propaganda. >> it is a propaganda film put together with a great leader there
. they are very concerned about the north's latest moves. look past the picture of kim jong un putting north korean rockets on standby. there is a chart marked u.s. mainland strike plan with missile trails at hawaii, california, d.c. and, for some reason, austin, texas. it's wishful thinking on pyongyang's part. they can't reach the u.s. yet. but tens of thousands of oh american troops are well within range of a more limited strike, something short of an all-out attack. >> i think it's more in the sense of north korea kind of getting right up to the edge, stumbling and falling over the edge. >> reporter: former ambassador chris hill says the real danger is the north shelling a border island like it did in 2010. hill says there is a wild card here that worries the u.s. young, inexperienced kim jong un's desire to prove himself as a leader. >> i think north koreans have their daughtoubts about whether kid is up to it. >> reporter: so far the rhetoric has not been matched by military moves. but it has no foreseeable end game and could go on for a while. north korea's protested on the streets on
jong-un's government has stayed quiet when south korea has come under cyberattack and blamed the north. south korea believes that they have a whole department dedicated to internet warfare, targeting the u.s. and south korea. in this case, three south korean tv broadcasters and two major banks have their computers go down at 2:00 o'clock yesterday afternoon. those systems stayed down for two to seven hours. for the bank customers, that meant no online banking, no teller machines, no use of debit or credit cards. some of the banks said afterwards that it did not appear that customer accounts were compromised. one south korean computer experts said all signs point north. they said it has to be a hacking attack. such shutdowns cannot be caused by technical glitches. they went on to say that political attacks on south korea come from north korea. so why might the north do it now? welcome here are some of the reasons. north koreans are upset about new u.n. sanctions and they are doing military drills. and north korea claimed that its computer systems were hacked days ago. south korea denied
their leader, kim jong-un, during his made-for-tv inspection tour of military border facilities. kim wants the world to see this as he has dramatically stepped up his dangerous rhetoric. he's even threatening a nuclear attack on the u.s. as he faces tough u.n. sanctions for his recent nuclear test. the obama administration isn't backing down. >> we're also going to continue to increase the pressure if they don't make the right choice. >> reporter: on his way to afghanistan, defense secretary chuck hagel made clear how closely the u.s. is watching. >> the united states of america and our allies are prepared to deal with any threat. >> reporter: cnn has learned the u.s. has recently stepped up surveillance using aircraft, radars and satellites already nearby. military officials say so far there are no signs of unusual military moves by the north. but there is a disturbing new weapons program, the kn-08. u.s. officials say this missile shown in a north korean military parade last year, is now undergoing engine testing. it's a three-stage ballistic missile with a potential 3,000-mile range. th
